More Experiments in Encaustic

A local shop that sells artist-made items, asked if I'd bring those two leaf encaustic pieces down to sell on consignment, so I made a couple more: the ash piece is 8x8, the maple is 6x6.
The third piece is also 6x6; I used a photo of a sidewalk as the background, adhered some leaves from my mother's day flowers, pushed some metal nuts (as in nuts & bolts) into the wax and painted oil paint in the shapes they left ... that has possibilities, I think.
